1. What is your personality type? INTP
2. Are you male or female? Female
3. What country do you live in now? What country are you born in? US for both
4. What cultural background are you? For simplicity's sake, my family is made up of Catholic French-Canadians and Protestant German/Scottish folk.
5. What religion are you? What religion is your family? I was raised Lutheran by my immediate family, but I suppose I'm some sort of non-denominational Christian (with frequent doubts), at this point.
6. What career are you in or looking to be in? What are you doing right now to help you achieve this career goal? I'm currently unsure of my career path, but I'm in college trying to figure that out. The idea of being a teacher appeals to me, I suppose.
7. What is your friendships like with both genders? How many good friends do you have and why are you friends with these people? I've had more close female friends than male friends, but sometimes I think guys are easier to talk to. I have a small group of close friends who are all artists (and nerds, to some extent). They put up with my sudden nerdy rants, and nudge me out of the door when I'm being reclusive. Mostly, I enjoy being with them because they can make me laugh, and I can make them laugh.
8. What paranoias do you have? When I was a kid, I was much more paranoid about my food allergies than I am today. Currently, I'm terrified of roaches. I also worry irrationally about my dogs (they're better than quite a few people I've met)
9. What are your vices? Procrastination, moodiness, self-pity, impatience, worry, reclusiveness.
10. What are your fears? I'm afraid of failure, of seeming unintelligent, and of embarrassing myself in social situations.
11. What is your relationship like with your parents? siblings (if you had any)? I think I have a relatively good relationship with my parents. Thankfully, they've been somewhat hands-off in terms of "instilling values" or affecting my intellectual individuality. I'm extremely grateful to them.
My sister has always been my best friend. She has a very different personality, but we make each other laugh more than anyone else.
12. How are you with expressing emotion in public? The larger the group of people I have to socialize with, the more difficult it is to express emotion (or to express myself at all). But even when I'm with someone one-on-one, I mostly let my enthusiasm and humor show. I keep most of my serious anger and sadness to myself.
13. How do you think people saw you in high school? How do you think people see you now? In high school, I was seen as a quiet, intelligent, slightly awkward nerd girl. Some people probably thought I was smarter than I actually was, because I only spoke up when I had something worthwhile to contribute. I was known as an enthusiastic Trekkie, as well.
I don't think much has changed, to be honest.
14. What do you see as the point to your life and life in general? The point of my life so far has been to think, to analyze, to understand, and to laugh at the absurdity of it all. The point of life in general? I can't really say that. It's up to each individual, as far as I can see.
